At the dedication of Sustainability Base, a pre-recorded message from John Holdren was played for the audience. Dr. Holdren is the Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
Sustainability Base is NASA's newest building and is also one of the nation's greenest. Built on the campus of the Ames Research Center at Moffett Field, Calif., the building is a highly intelligent and intuitive facility designed to anticipate and react to changes in sunlight, temperature, wind and occupancy. The building can optimize its performance automatically, in real time, in response to internal and external changes.
